a) Konkani Sammelan 2020 - Registration Fee Structure:

We honor the early bird registrations for those attendees who registered before Jan 31st, 2020. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the discounted pricing that is available.
Over the years the total cost to conduct a successful Sammelan have kept increasing, and Silicon Valley is no exception to this. Food and A/V (Audio-Video) are the major expense categories (Food is ~40% & A/V is ~30% of our Sammelan budget). A detailed study was conducted to keep the entrance fee increases to a minimum and thereby encourage attendance & participation. Like any previous Sammelan the entrance fee will only cover ~50% of the total Sammelan costs. In other words the entrance fee to Konkani Sammelan 2020 is subsidized for each one of us. We hope to raise the rest through generous donations from you. 

The entrance fee pays for entertainment & meals at the Sammelan. Meals will include 3 evening snacks (tannik) , 3 dinners; 2 lunches & 2 breakfasts between July 2nd to July 4th, 2021.

Don't miss out and please register early.

Onsite Registration / Check In:

Badges can be collected onsite starting July 2nd 2021 onwards. Volunteers will be onsite to help you check in and provide your KS2020 badges on all days. Onsite registration/Walk Ins are welcome but will be limited by the facility capacity. To manage the facility capacity restrictions our current plan is to identify on the attendee's badge his/her meal group preference specified at the time of registration, to specify meal timings & meal locations.

b) Youth Activities: If you have any one in your family between the ages 18 and 35 and he/she is interested in Youth Activities, please indicate "Youth Activities" in the Attendee Type field. Please have them follow this link for more information regarding the Youth portion of the Sammelan. They may also contact youth@konkanisammelan.org if they have any questions.

c) Cancellation Policy: 

  • You may cancel your registration at any time and we will issue a full refund. Once we firm up the Sammelan date we will update our cancellation policy to reflect any changes.

Please note that the registration fee is not tax deductible and only the donations are fully tax deductible. The Spouse name is being accepted so that both yours and your spouse's name will be listed on the donor list page.  

We encourage you to pay by PayPal to help us minimize clerical work.

f) As with previous sammelans, we have a page to view the list of attendees which helps you find your families and friends attending the event. If you wish to hide your names from the Attendee list, please check the box accordingly.
